Feeling nostalgic for your grandmother's old sewing patterns? Stitch some humor into your distant childhood with Pattern Behavior, featuring vintage covers from the McCall Pattern Company's archives.

This book is FANTASTIC. I almost peed myself laughing. I borrowed it from the library, but I think I need to own this.

Laura317 I‘ll have to get this! There used the be patterns in the newspaper when I was a child - it came with paperdolls. I want to say it was Betsy McCall? 10mo

This was a very quick read from my Christmas present stack. I chuckled most of the way through it & wondered why I didn‘t come up with this idea myself—we used to spend hours at the fabric store when I was little. I guess I was more focused on fancy, impractical dresses instead of the drawings. (Pardon the weird shadows and bright blue chair. It‘s swim practice time for my older kid, and it‘s too cold & snowy to sit in the car while I wait.)

Thanks for another fun #humpdaypost @MinDea!
🔹More books please! Especially the one pictured/tagged. Too bad I'm in a diet. 😔
🔹Plain
🔹The Chronicles of Narnia or Jude Devereaux's Velvet series (any Jude Devereaux really...it's pretty much all connected.)
🔹an anthropologist like my dad, then starting in 9th grade a Spanish teacher.
🔹18 or any multiple of it.

Cathythoughts Number 1. 😳😂😂 2y
Sace @Cathythoughts and like all diets, the minute I start everyone starts posting all kinds of temptations! 2y

Laughed until I had tears. Classic sewing pattern covers with captions. There are some questionable captions and some R rated ones, but over all hilarious. I‘m sure my grandmother had, possibly still has, some of these patterns. Target has this book for $9.80 at the moment by the way.

This hopped into my cart at Target along with way too many bags of half off candy.
WARNING: I plan to post far too many pictures from this as it is hilarious.
